Tech Tip – Enable Clipboard History for Easy Access to Multiple Clipboard Items

24th April 2024

If you frequently copy and paste various items, Windows Clipboard History is an invaluable tool that saves multiple clipboard items for later use, allowing you to access a history of copied text, images, or files. Here’s how to use it:

– Press Win + V to open the clipboard history panel. If it’s your first time using it, you may need to enable Clipboard History by clicking the ‘Turn on’ button that appears in the panel / type ‘Clipboard Settings’ into the start menu and toggle the ‘Clipboard history’ switch to ‘on’.

– Once enabled, each item you copy will be saved in the clipboard history, and you can access and paste older items by pressing Win + V and clicking on the item you want to use.
